Discipling the Found - Beasant Nagar

CED # 37

To the Glory of God Discipling classes started in October 2008. Eight students joined and the classes began with a committment for these ordinary fisherfolk to have a change in their lives.

Rev. S. Vincent : "All Glory to the Victorious Name of the Lord! I praise God for the ICI University because the members of this church have been immensely blessed by the CED programme. This training is what we needed in our church. The members have been blessed not only materially but also spiritually . This is the first Discipleship Training Program that we have had in our church. The training was done systematically giving a deep foundational knowledge for the members. I thank Noel Pentony for sending Ramesh Daniel and I thank Ramesh Daniel for coming and teaching the members in our church to submit and walk before God. I pray that God will bless ICI Unive
rsity in all their endeavours and extend their influence to greater boundaries."

"I thank God first for the ICI training program and for the workers who have come to teach us to walk before God. Even though I am an illiterate person, I could understand clearly what was taught to me. I was able to learn many of the verses just by listening to what was beng taught repetitively and also to understand them. There has been a great revelation through the Word of God which has changed my life completely. This training has been very useful in the prayer meetings and to teach the new comers in the church."

to the amazement of the pastor and fellow believers}.

I thank God for the ICI University classes. I was filled with rage before and would get angry with any and every one for no reason whatsoever and I would use abusivelanguage when speaking to others. But, now there is a great change in me. A great peace has come over me. I do not get angry with others now and I have stopped using abusive language. I have committed, come what may, to continue to come regularly for these classes which has proved a blessing to me and my family.
